Client:Misses Anderson
Type:Homestead
Style:Cape Georgian
Status:Extant
Street:2 Swellengrebel Street

Schoone Oordt is at the corner of Van Oudtshoorn Street. This house was built in 1853 by the Misses Anderson (se also 16 Van Oudtshoorn St). It is a double-storeyed, with five bays, and has a very fine veranda/balcony in front with elaborate ironwork. It has been well restored. It has a flat roof, but has a one-storey wing at the back with pitched iron roof (which is actually slightly higher than the double-storey roof). This back wing is a slightly later addition. [Walton: Double-storeyed ... p70.]
